Pincushion Flower Ochroleuca
Pincushion Flower ‘Ochroleuca’
This relatively unknown perennial pincushion variety is a must-grow! Plants have lacy foliage and produce an abundance of long, wiry stems topped with small, buttercream-colored blooms. They sparkle in the garden and lend a wildflower-like quality to arrangements. After flowers fade they leave behind miniature, pineapple-shaped seedpods that are excellent for handwork and crafting. This wonderful plant is covered in bees during the day and visited by moths at night.
